CELEBRATING THE FOURTH I f we are to take away from the boys the toy pistol and other dangerous fireworks, we must give them something in their place. That is the idea of Dr. Luther H. Gullick, president of the Playground Association of America, who elaborates his plan in the Youth’s Companion of June 2nd. He suggests the use of reasonably safe fireworks of a kind that make sufficient noise and display to suit the most exacting, but he would have certain places designated in which to set them off. and also restrict them to certain hours of the day. He suggests that the older boys in high schools and academies co-operate with city officials in planning a program which, while providing for the exuberant youth, will rouse the patriotic enthusiasm of the entire community. It is a program of parades of boys and girls, orations, songs and fireworks, and a “day after the Fourth” of happy rather than regretful memories. Are you keeping up with the Circular Staircase ? It is a most interesting story, and every one should read it. FINCHER’S NORMAL MUSICAL INSTITUTE Begins at Prescott Monday, June 6th, and Continu es for a Term of Twenty Days A Session of this most suc cessful and popular Institute will he held at Prescott, Nevada County, Arkansas, beginning June 7th, 1910, and continuing for a term of twenty days, clos ing with a concert on the evening of June 28th. TUITION PAYABLE IN ADVANCE Full Normal Course Advanced Harmony Pupils. $4.00. Full Normal Course Inter mediate Harmony Pupils, $3.50. Full Normal Course Primary Harmony Pupils, $3.00. Adults not studying Harmony, $2.50 Children under 12 years of Age, $2.00 BRANCHES OF STUDY Rudiments, Sight Singing, Ear Training, Voice Culture, Church Music, Chorus Practice, Har mony and Musical Composition. A place for all. Don’t get the idea that this school is for i those only who are advanced in Music, but remember, there is a department for every one, from the very ABC class to the most advanced. I hope to have a large number of.children, and adults too, who are beginners, attend this School and observe the special attention given to this department. Too, there is a place for those who have studied music and are more advanced. Who will enter this school with the purpose in view of being another Mozart, Hoyden. Palmer. Golabeck.Root, Emerald, Rubenstein, or many others whom you well might imitate. IMPORTANT POINTS He sure- to be present at the beginning-, that you may miss none of the ABC lessons given specially for the beginner. How ever, it is well for the most ad vanced students to hear these lessons discussed, thereby en abling them to go before their classes being assured that their methods have been tested and found good. So let us have a good school, and prepare for the better walks of life and be lifted up to shine as LIGHTS before the public. Parents come and bring your children and let all the family learn to sing praises to the “most high’' creating melody in their hearts to him. Good board can be had in private homes or hotels at reasonable rates. j. w\ FINCHER, Principal, w. r. STEED, Chairman. .1. a. bailey. Secretarv.

F. Yoakum Before the National Convention Held at St. Louis. (Continued from last issue.) The kind of politics which has been preached to the farmers for the last twenty years has been the thing- which has kept the farmers for twenty years from advancing their interests and keeping pace with others who are organized. What effect would such a politician have if he should talk to an organization of produce merchants condemn ing bankers to whom the dealers must look for capital to carry on their business. They would laugh at him. To this same class you have listened. Successful results to you will come by you treating the prejudice preacher in the same manner as a com mercial organization would treat him if he tried to get between it and the financial assistance nec essary to carry on its business. The United States Steel Cor poration is one of the best managed and has the largest list of stockholders of any organiza* tion in the country. Its stock holders are largely distributed, being in every State in the Union. Your organization has a membership of several millions. The Steel Company watches its chance for profit and expansion. It encourages railroad construc tion to remote places where transportation is necessary to promply and economically handle its business. Your organization givees no attention to these subjects. The Steel Company fixes the price for which it sells its goods. You sell yours at the price the buyer fixes. The Steel Company quotes its prices to the buyers. You put your products on, sale, and the buyers make your prices. If organized, you can have something to say about the prices for which you sell. The Southern farmers’ princi pal crop is cotton, which increas es in value every move it makes from the farm to the manufac turer. As collateral, there is none better and the cotton HAWKINS--WILSON Chas. L. Hawkins and Miss Emma Wilson were married on last Saturday at the residence of his sister, Mrs. J. O. A. Bush. Rev. W. A. Steele officiated. Mr. Hawkins lives in Oklaho ma City. He is a young man with lots of energy and get up. Miss Emma is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Willis Wilson of this county and is one of the leading young women of her community. They have many friends in this county that wish for tnem happiness and success in this life. farmers should be organized to f hold their cotton until they are ready to sell at satisfactory prices. The time will come when states will construct public ware . houses and supervise their opera tion under safe rules and regula tions. The first state to give this advantage to the planters will be Louisiana. There will be some objection to this movement, but there are always objections to any movement that has for its object bringing the farmers in closer relations to the business world, curtailing the profit be tween them and the consumer. Under this proposed Louisiana warehouse system, every farmer individually or through organiza tion can ship his cotton to New Orleans and hold it until he is ready to sell, and his warehouse receipt will be as good in the hands of a cotton mill owner in Providence, Rhode Island, or Manchester, England, as the contract of the speculator to deliver them cotton. To accomplish best results^ your officers and Executive Committee must have the loyal support of its members. Co operation with such institutions as it is to your interest to work with will enable you to make * more progress in the next ten years than you nave made in the last, twenty. To arrive at the high business standard to which the farmers of America are destined, their business, like other business, must be conduct ed in the most economical man ner, and with due regard to uti lizing all by-products of the farm. You can atford to study the operating plan of organiza I tions which have succeeded. (Continued in next issue.)
